Grateful Dead Live at The Palestra, U. of Rochester on 1970-11-20
- Live concert
- Grateful Dead
- DeadLists Project
This is a reported Marty Weinberg audience recording. Many songs have been clipped at the beginning or end, though most of these cuts are minor. There are occasional, faint moments of static or degradation throughout this recording. Besides the flaws, which are minor, this is one of the better audience recordings of the year.
Several large dropouts were adjusted, such that extremely low levels were normalized and smoothed over using Sound Forge:
d1t06 @ 1:30
d1t06 @ 3:20
d1t09 @ 4:02 (irreparable)
d1t09 @ 4:20
d1t09 @ 6:10
d2t03 @ 1:22 (irreparable)
d2t05 @ 1:20
d3t07 @ 0:35
d3t09 @ 10:03
--reel flip @ 0:55 in FOTD
--tape flutter at beginning of St. Stephen
--it seems the recording has picked up a nearby radio station as overlapping music can be heard during parts of St. Stephen
--the order of the songs is uncertain, as the placement of Good Lovin' is questionable.

Subject: my first Dead show; thanks peter_r
Huge thanks, peter_r for liberating that tape from Stone. I/we played that tape literally many many dozens of times over the decades, and shared it far and wide. Myth is that y'all (was "Fred J" one of them?) did an infamous creep-along-the-ledge from one window to the next on the outside (as we did in so many of the dorms to break into each others' rooms) to get into Stone's room. I remember some of us watching Stone and friend do the recording at the concert. They didn't bring enough tape with them for the long concert so they kept making hasty decisions about what to record over, thus the odd cut-offs and flips.
Thanks to the great musicians, the scene, and the folks who help spread the music recordings!

Subject: The real story
For years I have been hoping a soundboard from this show would surface. In the interim if somebody wants to re-encode this one-of-a-kind show, I will gladly share....
Subject: Jorma in Rochester
This is an average aud for '70 and there are quite a few cuts. There are some interesting jams with Jorma and Good Lovin' is a standout, but now that we're all spoiled, I wouldn't recommend this show. Stick with the Capitol Theater shows from earlier in the month.
